Athenix offers 2 types of Brow Lifts:
Traditional Brow Lift:With the classical or “open” method the incision is hidden just inside or by the hairline across the scalp and between the ears. Your Athenix surgeon lessens the appearance of wrinkles by removing selected muscles and releasing tissues, which cause the wrinkles. The eyebrows may also be elevated, and excess skin at the incision will be removed to allow a gentle redraping of your forehead skin. Wrinkles and frown lines often first appear in the brow and forehead area. Patients get an out-patient procedure under local anesthesia with deep sedation, or general anesthesia. The procedure may take 1 to 2 hours.
Minimal Incision Brow Lift: This procedure offers a quicker, less invasive way to erase years from your face with shorter incisions and less down time than a traditional brow lift. A minimal incision, endoscopic brow lift is particularly effective for younger patients where the removal of excess skin is not required. This technique requires only a few tiny incisions that are concealed in the hairline and minimizes loss of sensation at the incision site. Since an endoscopic brow lift can significantly reduce the frown lines between the eyes, it is often performed in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery to achieve optimal results.
* Both Minimal and Traditional Brow Lifts may improve the balance of your face by improving your facial asymmetry.
